Northwest Passage

to Ms O'Leary

Doctor John Dee
read four thousand books
and spoke
to Annael
in tongues.

She was his muse
and Spenser's virgin queen.

Together they scryed
a darkened way
to a manifest

Through chartered
and bartered ships
they struggled
beneath sea-green
and beached
one fateful day
as castaways
in auriferous
